I believe that everything starts by paying attention. Life is imperfect and any magical light we can bring into our day is worthy of our gratitude. Laughter and love, joy and celebrations slip into our lives with ease but learning to cope with the deep pain life brings to us is also necessary. I do this best with my camera, chasing down light, zooming in and out and pairing it all with truth. 

I live in Western Washington with my husband of 40+ years, in the home where we raised our three sons. We share that home now with our sweet beagle named Basil. 

Thank you so much for stopping by.

“Remember what mom used to say? “Shred the guilt.” 
― Miriam Toews, All My Puny Sorrows

it feels good to be back at rowing this morning
8,500 meters on my rower when i clean the machine
later i pick an armful of flowers from the yard
fill three vases and trim the sage, which has started to bloom
i put the tiny sweetness in a vase and set it in the window
the dog pouts because he never got a walk
and i think. . .  
maybe it is not too late
